NY Times loses awards for Caliphate podcast
« dnia: Luty 23, 2021, 09:03:44 am »

The New York Times has returned an award and had another withdrawn after it found discrepancies in its podcast on the Islamic State group.

After a two-month investigation, the newspaper said the podcast, Caliphate, failed to meet its editorial standards.

In the 2018 series, Shehroze Chaudhry, one of its central figures, claims he travelled to Syria and joined IS.

But the Times said on Friday that it found "a history of misrepresentations" about his involvement with the group.

As a result, it has returned a Peabody Award for the podcast. The Overseas Press Club said it had also rescinded its Lowell Thomas Award given to the show's producers.

'How I survived an IS massacre'
How do countries deal with people returning from IS?
Is Islamic State defeated?
Is Africa the new jihadist battleground?
Dean Basquet, the Times' executive editor, said in a podcast on Friday that "this failing wasn't about any one reporter. I think it was an institutional failing."

The podcast's host Rukmini Callimachi - a four-time Pulitzer Prize finalist - has been reassigned from her duties covering terrorism.

In a statement on Twitter, Ms Callimachi apologised for "what we missed and what we got wrong."
The paper began its review of Caliphate after Pakistan-born Mr Chaudhry was arrested by Canadian police in September, and charged with hoax-terrorist activity. pgslot

The Canadian broadcaster CBC used his alleged IS name, Abu Huzaifa al-Kanadi, in a 2017 report, in which he described lashing a man with a whip as part of his duties for the violent Islamic group, but said he never killed anyone.
